Commonwealth Cruisers 1939-45 #226 Osprey New Vanguard, Angus Konstam
1 Commonwealth Cruisers 1939-45 #226 Osprey New Vanguard
Angus Konstam UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472805011 / 9781472805010 Soft cover New Book 24.8 x 18.4 x 0.5 cm Paul Wright 
In the early 20th century Britain's largest colonies established their own small naval presence, and their ships fought alongside the Royal Navy during World War I. These fleets were expanded during the inter-war years, and in 1939 the Royal Australian Navy, the Royal Canadian Navy and the Royal New Zealand Navy willingly joined the fight on behalf of the British Commonwealth. For the most part these small navies consisted of a few cruisers and destroyers, designed to protect territorial waters and local sea lanes. However, these warships and their crews soon found themselves involved in a global war, and consequently were called upon to fight wherever they were needed, against the Germans, the Italians and the Japanese. This book tells the story of these small cruiser forces, and the men who served the Allied cause so well during the long and brutal war at sea.

Byzantine Warship vs Arab Warship: 7th - 11th Centuries #64 Osprey Duel, Angus Konstam and Peter Dennis
2 Byzantine Warship vs Arab Warship: 7th - 11th Centuries #64 Osprey Duel
Angus Konstam and Peter Dennis UK Osprey Publishing 2015 147280757X / 9781472807571 Soft cover New Book 
For four hundred years the Byzantine Empire's naval forces vied with the warships of the Islamic world for mastery of the Mediterranean. At the heart of this confrontation were the fighting vessels of the two powers, the Byzantine dromon and the Arabic shalandi, both oared warships. In those four centuries of warfare between two major maritime powers, both the Byzantines and the Arabs left us records of their doctrine and tactics, as well as of how their ships were built. Featuring full-colour artwork and rigorous analysis from an authority on naval warfare, this enthralling book offers a glimpse of the long-lost world of war at sea in the age of Byzantium.

This book tells the stories of more than 750 craft, almost without exception privately owned, built by professional and non-professional boat builders and launched from the banks of the Tamar River. Racing abilities and tales of extended cruises are on record along with outstanding racing successes in Tasmanian coastal and Bass Strait waters. Inevitably there is also recorded for a few their loss through foundering or other sad circumstance. In addition there are items of historical interest about the River itself, together with old and pertinent papers, and photographs depicting varying sailing rig and styles of motor launches. The Tamar Boats can be regarded as a book of reference, and is a boating book with a difference as each craft has its own story to tell. Signed by the Author on the title page. Inscription on inside front endpaper reads 'To Uncle Trevor from Glenn, Margaret & Family July 1993'. Overall in very good codition. Dust jacket in Very Good Condition with some slight rubbing on front and rear.

US Standard-Type Battleships 1941-45 1: Nevada, Pennsylvania and New Mexico Classes #220 Osprey New Vanguard, Mark Stille
5 US Standard-Type Battleships 1941-45 1: Nevada, Pennsylvania and New Mexico Classes #220 Osprey New Vanguard
Mark Stille UK Osprey Publishing 2015 1472806964 / 9781472806963 Soft cover New Book 
Written by US Navy expert Mark Stille, this book offers a unique insight into the Standard-type classes of US battleships. It provides a detailed investigation into the histories of each of the warships in the Standard-type battleship classes, the first three of which, the Nevada, Pennsylvania and New Mexico, formed the US Navy's main force in the inter-war period. The Standard-types reflected a new design philosophy: by designing each class to meet common standards of maneuvrability and handling, vessels of different classes could operate as a single tactical unit without being limited by the performance of the slowest and least maneuvrable ship. At the time of their construction, these ships incorporated the latest design features such as triple gun turrets. Although they were rendered increasingly obsolete by evolving naval doctrines and the ascendance of the fast battleship, they served with distinction throughout World War II. This study combines analysis of design features and an absorbing narrative of operational histories to offer a comprehensive picture of the Standard-type battleships, from the brutal destruction of the USS Arizona to the triumphant occupation of Japan.

Boats with an Open Mind: Seventy-five Unconventional Designs and Concepts [used book], Philip C. Bolger
6 Boats with an Open Mind: Seventy-five Unconventional Designs and Concepts [used book]
Philip C. Bolger USA International Marine 1994 0070063761 / 9780070063761 Soft cover Good Book 23.5 x 18.7 x 3.0 cm 
Here are 75 novel and wonderful boats - some strange, some beautiful, all of them paragons of Philip Bolger's form-follows-function design philosophy. A planing microtrawler; a glass-galleried, beachable birdwatching boat; a fully enclosed ocean-cruising rowboat; cruising sailboats that take the ground at low tide; power, sail, and rowing boats from 6 to 95 feet - these are boats as only Bolger's unfettered imagination does them. This is the first collection of Bolger's work in almost 15 years. It is long overdue. "Bolger is an eloquent writer and his comments run the gamut from hilarious to profound." - "The Ensign". "Bolger brings a kind of youthful feeling to yacht design - he would rather make precedent than follow it." - "WoodenBoat". "Bolger has a way of seducing even the lay reader into thinking about and beginning to understand boat design." - "Cruising World"."Boat lovers who are used to designers who conceive the same boat over and over, camouflaged with a face-lifting here and there, will be amazed at Phil Bolger's diversity." - "Boatbuilder".
